(October 7, 2019) ATLANTA, GA – For the third year in a row, The Association for Dressings & Sauces (ADS) awarded Oakland, CA-based The Clorox Company as the winner of the Package of the Year Award. This year, the award was presented for the Hidden Valley Ranch Topping & Dressing LOOP Package at the ADS Annual Meeting “Playing an Instrumental Role” held October 5-7 at the JW Marriott Austin in Austin, Texas. “Hidden Valley® Ranch has been on a mission to spread ranch love since 1954. Over the years, the love of ranch has grown from a salad dressing to a national obsession. We wanted to give people a way to enjoy as much Hidden Valley® Ranch as humanly possible — while limiting waste. Our sleek, new glass HVR bottle gives you the same blast of ranch flavor you love in an ecofriendly material that can be used over and over again delivered directly to your doorstep said Dr. Ritu Mishra at The Clorox Company, who thanked her innovation team and Matthias Palm, Research Fellow, for spearheading this project.
“We are honored that the members of the association recognized the form and function of our innovation,” said Dr. Mishra.
The Package of the Year Award is presented by ADS to increase the awareness of packaging and to celebrate the accomplishments of the packaging industry for dressing, sauce and condiment-related packages. Nominations for the award were received and ADS members cast their votes for the package deemed most innovative at the ADS April 28-April 30, 2019 Technical Meeting in Louisville, KY.
